Mmm.... my favorite bit is the rum drinking part. Essential to any successful culinary venture.

It helps to bake this in black lingerie, with all the windows in the house open (blinds closed) in the middle of October, in the middle of the afternoon. Drink the raisin rum, and, you know, any other rum you happen to stumble upon. Wait for husband to come home, putting on his t-shirt over said black lingerie just before his arrival so you can take the garbage out.
